Fresh Eggs Daily
Author
With an audience of hundreds of thousands that spans the globe, I am well-recognized as the creative force behind Fresh Eggs Daily®, the most popular destination for natural chicken and duck keeping advice on the internet.

A fifth-generation chicken keeper who has been around chickens most of my life, I have been raising my own backyard flock since 2009 and sharing my farming adventures on my wildly popular blog and Facebook pages, charming readers and drawing them to Fresh Eggs Daily® in record numbers to help them learn how to keep their flocks safe from predators, how to build strong immune systems, and how to keep them healthy and happy without using antibiotics or other commercial medications. Homeopathy has become such a hot topic for people of all walks of life, both in their own lives and that of their animals, so by focusing on natural methods, I have really tapped into the current trend in chicken keeping.

A Maine Master Gardener and aspiring herbalist dedicated to raising my own animals as naturally as possible, I offer practical, down-to-earth and time-tested homeopathic advice for raising chickens using herbs and other holistic preventives and remedies - and show my readers how to have some fun while doing it. In addition to chicken keeping tips, I also share DIY projects for the coop and run using repurposed materials, natural household and personal products, gardening ideas, and recipes using fresh eggs, vegetables and herbs.

I grew up on a small farm across the street from my grandparents chicken farm in central Massachusetts and raised chickens and rabbits growing up. Our family always had a large vegetable garden, which is where my love of working in the soil began. After heading off to college and a short stint on Wall Street (where I grew herbs on the windowsill of my tiny apartment!), I am back on a New England farm once again, doing what I love and proud to be carrying on my family tradition.
